Symposium NM09 – Novel Approaches and Material Platforms for Plasmonics and Metamaterials

Symposium Organizers
Viktoriia Babicheva, University of Arizona
Alexandra Boltasseva, Purdue University
Isabelle Staude, Friedrich­ Schiller­ University Jena
Josh Caldwell, Vanderbilt University

This symposium addresses emerging topics of hybrid nanophotonics including plasmonics, metamaterials, metasurfaces, and two-dimensional materials to overcome existing limitations that prevent the development of practical photonic devices. The symposium seeks to provide a general overview of recent advances in new design concepts and material platforms, including fabrication techniques and promising applications enabled by the new developments.
